Falcons Odds To Win The Super Bowl 2017

Falcons Odds To Win The Super Bowl 2017
Media Day/Night is history, although the circus will continue, and we are now just five days away from Super Bowl LI. The Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots have made their way to the Lone Star State and the anticipation level continues to climb. Here we take a look at the current LIVE odds for SBLI that kicks off at 6:30 PM ET on February 5, 2017, at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.

Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl Odds

Strangers – in a strange land, is a fitting mantra for Atlanta who are making a franchise second NFL title game appearance. Also, this is only the third time the Falcons have played in Houston – the last being during the 2011 season. One of 13 NFL squads who haven’t raised a Vince Lombardi Trophy, Atlanta looks to break free from that un-illustrious group with a win over the experienced Patriots. Holding steady, although with varying amounts of juice, the Falcons are +3 point SBLI underdogs.

Hotter than a recently fired pistol, the Falcons soar into Houston after posting an 11-5 record which earned Atlanta their fourth NFC South Division regular season title. Following a 31-24 NFL Opening Day loss at home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Atlanta rattled off four straight wins by a 151-109 combined count. Back-to-back losses to Seattle (26-24) and at San Diego (33-30 OT) were relatively unlucky defeats. Following a 3-2 run, the Falcons closed out the season with four straight victories.

Atlanta Falcons Chances To Win Super Bowl LI

Based solely on their +3 point spread price, the Falcons have a fighting chance to win Super Bowl LI. That said, except for Head Coach Dan Quinn, no Falcon with high relevance has NFL Championship Game experience. New England on the other hand, is making a new NFL record ninth Super Bowl Sunday appearance. The Patriots are also a little more familiar with the parameters at NRG Stadium as Tom Brady & Crew played there four times with the 2013 and 2015 seasons being most recent. 

Winners of six in a row, Atlanta heads into Houston deserving of their NFC Crown. Pummelling four also-rans, 154-75 to close out their season, the Falcons have remained white-hot. After a Wild Card Weekend bye, Atlanta hosted Seattle and stomped the Seahawks 36-20 in the Divisional Playoffs. Green Bay came calling next; in what would be the final game played under the Georgia Dome, and the Falcons sent the Packers packing with a dominant 44-12 victory during the NFC Championship.

NFL Playoff History: Atlanta Falcons Dan Quinn and Matt Ryan

Not entirely opposite to the Patriots, when it comes to playoff experience, Atlanta is lacking some in this dynamic which must be considered as part of a proper research path. Prior to this season, QB Matt Ryan led the Falcons to a 1-4 record during five postseason matches. Atlanta dropped a 30-24 Wild Card decision to the Arizona Cardinals in 2009, a 48-21 Divisional battle to Green Bay in 2010 and 24-2 Wild Card loss to the New York Giants in 2012. Finally enjoying sweet victory, the Falcons snuck past Seattle 30-28 in the 2013 Divisional tilt before falling to the San Francisco 49ers 28-24 in the NFC Championship. A three-year absence from the playoff party would follow those matches. Looking at Super Bowl Sunday experience, the table tilts totally in the New England Patriots favour.

Pats pivot Tom Brady has played in six NFL Championships while four Falcons have participated in a combined five Super Bowl battles. DE Dwight Freeney (Colts x 2) DT Courtney Upshaw (Ravens) LB Philip Wheeler (Colts) and S Dashon Goldson (49ers) have been to the dance but they are backups on the Atlanta defense. Dirty Birds Head Coach Dan Quinn will have his flock ready here as this will be his third title game appearance in four seasons. Quinn was the defensive coordinator during the Seahawks 43-8 destruction of Denver during SB XLVIII in 2014 but came up empty during Seattle’s 28-24 Super Bowl XLIX loss to the Patriots in 2015. We will be back with our NFL 51 Championship prediction later in the week. Prior to that though, we advise everyone to get ready for Super Bowl LI by opening a personal wagering account at any top ranked bookmaker on the CSB ranking list.
